Learn ‘power’ yoga — for free — at Fern Bacon

e-Connections Post Fern Bacon

Fern Bacon Middle School teacher Janna Cantwell was so inspired by the free yoga classes offered to the East Sac community in McKinley Park that she decided to do the same for South Sacramento.

On Wednesdays from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., Cantwell teaches free “Power Yoga” on the lawn of Fern Bacon, 4140 Cuny Ave. (Classes are held in the community room on rainy and cold days.)

“Yoga is a great way to tone your body, improve your focus, remove toxins through sweat, train for athletics and sports and practice the power of being present,” she says.

Power Yoga, or Vinyasa yoga, is a style that connects movement with breathing. Veterans and novices are welcomed and encouraged to attend.
